In the SmallState Lottery, three white balls are drawn (at random) from twenty balls numbered 1 through 20, and a blue SuperBall is drawn (at random) from ten balls numbered 21 through 30. When you buy a ticket, you select three numbers from 1-20 and one number from 21-30. To win the jackpot, the numbers on your ticket must match the three white balls and the SuperBall. (You don't need to match the white balls in order).

If you buy a ticket, what is your probability of winning the jackpot?

Probability of 3 white balls matching =1 / 20C3 =1 / 1140.

Probability of the blue Superball =1 / 10C1 =1 / 10

Probability of of the winning ticket =1 / 1140 * 10 = 1 /11, 400.
